“Delicious food; Excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed a great evening out with friends from out of town. All of us selected the line caught halibut served on a bed of asparagus risotto, a couple of oyster mushrooms draped elegantly over the halibut topped with oak charred onions. Simply delicious. The halibut did not match the outstanding fresh halibut I had once in Alaska but again this is northern Virginia. :-)

The service was great - server poured our wine from the bottle so we could taste before filling our glasses - why don't more restaurants do that? All in all, an enjoyable evening. PLUS A TIP: if you want to dine without shouting, dine upstairs vs the vibrant bar downstairs where the noise level can get quite energetic.

“Something for Everyone!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

I am particularly fond of the pizzas, but really Liberty Tavern has something for everyone. The evening we were there, they offered a special octopus ceviche which on of my friends enjoyed. For happy hour, the first floor is quite fun and lively.

“Good food, great service and willing to accommodate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Last night I dined a Liberty Tavern with business colleagues. I had a very good squid in linguini pasta (but some of the seafood was overcooked). There was a good source of local beers and the service was excellent. Most importantly they were graciously able to accommodate dietary needs (e.g. vegetarian, gluten free). The atmosphere is open brasserie style but not too noisy. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I'd return.

“Food and Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I've had lunch twice now at the Liberty Tavern in Clarendon and it's been special each time! Very friendly service and the menu is varied with interesting combinations of flavors, as well as the classics. Shop down one side of Clarendon, refuel at Liberty Tavern, and then shop up the other side for a girls day out!

“Great Lunch Destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Stopped in for a business lunch.

Ordered a beer and Cubano Pannini.
Damn glad I did. Fantastic sandwich (the lick your plate kinda sandwich) - and the red-skin potato salad was a delicious accompaniment.

Parking in the Clarendon area of Arlington is limited... try a side street.

My colleagues also raved about their fares - panini, salad and lobster roll.

Would recommend. Yes - without reservation
Would re-patronize again: Yes. Hoping to before the end of summer
